Well, this is quite devestating

My jacket is ruined. I need to replace both back panels now. I don't know how I will be able to make this thing in 4 hours now. We're leaving for N-kun's tonight, and I have to remake a whole garment.
I've been trying to get this T-shirt transfer to work, but I'm completely stumped. Since i'm using a poly blend, it doesn't like high heat. For the T-shirt transfer to work, I have to iron it on at very high heat& pressure. High heat burns my fabric. And I certainly can't leave it on high heat and high pressure very long.. which means the transfer won't stick properly. I don't know what to do, and I'm running out of time. I was just about to put the neckband on this thing and call it finished, too. I'm glad I hadn't painted the parts on the bottom yet. That would have been even worse.
I was thinking about making another transfer and trying it on a scrap of fabric first, but when it came down to it, I didn't do it, for whatever reason. now, to make it look nice, I have to re-cut two back panels.

I'm just thankful I bought lots of extra fabric. This is bad enough as it is. It would have been worse if I was out of fabric.

I still don't know how to make this work, though, and I can't free-hand that kanji, either. My calligraphy is horrible. I'm starting to wonder if I should give up on getting this done in time. Kimonos don't take that long to sew, but it's rather devistating that i have to re-make a garment.


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
